NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION - What's Yours?

Post  ESLC Team on Sat Dec 29, 2012 10:04 pm


A New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year's Resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People committing themselves to a New Year's resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous.

According to Gretchen Rubin (author of best-seller "The Happiness Project"): "You hit a goal, you achieve a goal. You keep a resolution".

Popular goals include resolutions to:

- Improve well-being: lose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less alcohol, quit smoking, stop biting nails
- Improve finances: get out of debt, save money
- Improve career: get a better job
- Improve education: improve grades, get a better education, learn something new (such as a foreign language or music), study often
- Improve self: become more organized, reduce stress, be less grumpy, manage time, be more independent, perhaps watch less television, play fewer sitting-down video games
- Take a trip
- Volunteer to help others, practice life skills, use civic virtue, give to charity
- Get along better with people
- Cutting down on drinking
- Making new friends
- Trying foreign foods


At ESL Community Forum, our resolution for 2013 is to continue to learn, and to teach, the English language on a way that is Fun, Fashion, and Free!
What is your resolution for the year 2013? Let us know!
